Classic and Timeless Blinds

Venetian blinds give you a more substantial material to dress your windows. They come in a variety of materials such as wood, metal or plastic that cascades down from the top of the window. These can be tilted, raised, or lowered, so they can be adjusted for privacy and light levels to give you great lighting control.

You can also choose between several different styles from the flat front Roman shade to a soft pleat style that shows graceful pleats when it is down and up.

Contemporary and Modern Window Blinds

If you are more in the market for something modern or contemporary, you have two great choices: vertical and roller blinds.

Vertical blinds can be made of many materials to match your decor or wood, metal, plastic or fabrics for a soft appearance. A Venetian blind and a vertical blind are quite similar as they can both be opened or closed to any height and the vanes can be tilted for filtered lighting.

Roller blinds are made of fabric and appear as a flat sheet of fabric when they are down. When raised, the fabric rolls up on a cassette at the top of the window to hide out of site. You can use any type of fabric you wish, from room darkening to light filtering and everywhere in between.

Creative and Unique Window Blinds

Fabric blinds give you so many choices in how your window treatments will appear and how they make a room feel. Matching a solid, neutral color to your trim of your windows is often an avenue that homeowners take. However, you can spice it up as you see fit.

Blinds can also add a punch of color to a room, which makes a more pronounced design statement. If your room is all solid colors with no pattern, choose a fun print or pattern and make your windows a work of art with a custom roller shade in an accent color from your rug. Choose woven woods or stained blinds to blend the colors of your room and add texture and interest to your windows if you’re not feeling bold.

Window Blinds for Light Control and Privacy

Blinds can be of many different weights of fabric, from sheer and flowing blinds to thick blackout blinds. If your window doesn’t get a lot of sunlight, you can choose sheer blinds to allow light into your indoor spaces even when they are down.

For bedrooms, many people choose blackout blinds for the ultimate privacy and to darken the room to promote peaceful sleep. Blackout blinds also curb all the UV sun rays and dampen outside noises while you are trying to rest.

Window Blinds for Unusual Windows

The best blinds for any type of unusually shaped window are custom-made so they fit perfectly and operate properly.

Having an arched window is unique, attractive, and notable. These windows are not as difficult to cover as you might believe. We offer a wide array of window treatments that can be customized to perfectly fit your window opening. Cellular shades are available as stationary or operable to control the amount of natural light and privacy you need. Pleated shades and composite wood arches are also popular choices for covering arches.

It is possible to cover tricky angled windows with angle top cellular shades in your interior design. These shades come in a variety of colors and patterns, so you can match any decor. The only drawback is that they will only lift to the height of the shortest side. Custom wood shutters have slats that can be tilted open or closed, so if this is an issue for you, consider this.

Window Blinds for Specific Rooms
